OMG Lori Loughlin SO Should Have Pleaded Guilty!!!

Published

on

Well, if you were on the fence about whether Aunt Becky should have just come clean and told Danny Tanner federal prosecutors everything, the outcome of this case should make up your mind for good.

Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of bribing USC officials with $500,000 to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Bella admitted to the university as athletes on the crew team — despite the fact neither actually had any intention of joining the team, or even rowed crew at all.

While the Full House star is the most famous bust among the dozens arrested in Operation Varsity Blues, her case is far from unique. In fact, another quite similar case was resolved on Tuesday — and it’s kind of a slap in the face for Lori.

Michelle Janavs is the heir to the Hot Pockets fortune, which means she’s rich — but also flaky, LOLz! In all seriousness, her family is worth an estimated $4 BILLION. And she spent big bucks cheating to get her kids into exclusive schools.

Like Lori, Michelle also denied any wrongdoing at first. But the government continued to put the pressure on with new charges. Unlike the Hallmark Channel poster girl, Michelle eventually caved in and pleaded guilty to one count each of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. (Lori still faces these charges AND has since also been hit with federal programs bribery.)

And so Janavs admitted to conspiring with fraudster Rick Singer (who was busted very early on and flipped, helping the FBI get evidence on everyone else). Per her guilty plea, she:

  • paid $50k to “fix” her daughter’s ACT test — twice
  • agreed to pay $200k to USC athletics administrator Donna Heinel (the same one who allegedly conspired with Lori) to get her daughter into the school as a fake volleyball recruit

She was also accused of paying $400k to Georgetown to get her son in as a Division I tennis recruit. He actually DOES play tennis, though from reports — including a New Yorker interview with a star teammate who didn’t get in — he was nowhere near good enough to gain admission. It seems to have been in the face of new charges related to her son that Janavs folded and pleaded guilty.

On Tuesday the mother of three was sentenced in the case; prosecutors sought a reasonable 21 months — a guilty verdict for either of the crimes she was charged with could have gotten her 20 YEARS — but her legal team argued (again similarly to Lori’s defense) that she was a gullible mom who was duped by bad actors.

In the end Janavs got just 5 MONTHS, which, when all things considered, is extremely light. Heck, Lori has been in a prison of stress and public shame for longer than that.

We can only imagine how this must hurt seeing how lenient judges are being on those who were in her exact same position but chose to accept responsibility instead.

Do YOU think Lori should bite the bullet and plead guilty now? Or take her chances with a jury??

Ted Baker names Osborne permanent CEO

Published

on

Ted Baker has finally found its new CEO with Rachel Osborne taking on the role permanently after several months as caretaker chief executive. 

Ted Baker

And they’ve certainly been a rollercoaster few months for the executive who only joined the company in November in the role of chief financial officer. She was catapulted into the vacant CEO’s chair just a month later and clearly is seen as having done a good job since then. 

Osborne has more than 20 years of relevant brand and retail sector experience and was previously at Debenhams where she had been CFO. She also held the same role at Domino’s Pizza Group, was finance director of group enterprise at Vodafone and finance & strategy director at John Lewis. She had previously also worked at Sodexo, Kingfisher and PepsiCo.

In recent months she’s been leading a significant period of change and transformation, including developing key strategic priorities for the firm’s hoped-for turnaround and the announcement of the sale and leaseback of the company’s headquarters at a significant premium to its book value. And, of course, she’s also been leading the firm during the unprecedented challenges presented by Covid-19.

Acting chair Sharon Bailey is continuing in her role for now and the firm is still seeking a permanent chair, although on Monday it said the search is progressing well”.

Baylay said of Osborne: “Following a thorough and competitive search process, the board is delighted that Rachel is being appointed as chief executive. Rachel has already made a significant contribution to Ted Baker, working tirelessly in recent months to develop a transformation plan for the business. She has brought hugely relevant retail and customer experience and is ideally positioned to lead Ted Baker’s turnaround in the future.”

L’Oréal USA launches domestic Covid-19 relief efforts

Published

on

L’Oréal USA has launched several new initiatives to support Americans during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

L’Oréal

In a statement, the company said it will donate $250,000 to Feeding America, a nonprofit dedicated to hunger relief, to support the organization’s Covid-19 Response Fund. The donation comes as an extension of the company’s giving campaign in which the American arm of the beauty company will match additional employee donations dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000.

Like LVMH and Coty, L’Oréal has also made the choice to support healthcare workers fighting the Covid-19 outbreak by beginning the production of alcohol-based hand sanitizer at its North American manufacturing facilities, starting this week. The sanitizer will then be distributed to medical staff, as well as the company’s U.S. employees and partners, free of charge.

In addition, L’Oréal USA will donate protective masks from its operations facilities in North Little Rock, Arkansas, and Franklin, New Jersey, to local hospital systems in each surrounding community.

The company will further donate a supply of personal care products valued at more than $1 million, including cleansers and moisturizers, to the Covid-19 relief efforts of Feed the Children, a nonprofit focused on alleviating childhood hunger

To help its small-scale partners, L’Oréal USA said it will freeze the payments of very small and small-sized enterprises in its distribution network, including hair salons, until their businesses resume. The company will also shorten its payment times for small suppliers who have been hit by the virus’s economic impact.

“I know I speak for all of my colleagues when I say that we at L’Oréal USA feel a deep responsibility to do our part to help address this crisis in the many communities in which we live and work,” said Stéphane Rinderknech, president and CEO of L’Oréal USA, and executive vice president, North America.

“We stand in solidarity with the brave people who are tirelessly and selflessly working to end this pandemic, and it is our hope that, through these actions, we are able to provide some relief during this challenging time.” 

These new commitments come after the launch of L’Oréal’s Europe-wide Coronavirus Solidarity Program last week.

Even Notorious Homebody Kylie Jenner Seems Bored AF Amid Long Coronavirus Quarantine!

Published

on

Don’t get us wrong — the self-isolation and social distancing practices we are going through right now are ABSOLUTELY the right thing to do with this pandemic, without question.

But the quarantine life has even the most content-heavy family among us — the Kardashian clan — grasping at straws right now with so many businesses and places shut down to fight the pandemic.

Notorious homebody Kylie Jenner released a brand new video on her YouTube channel this weekend, which you can watch (above). In the new vid, which trended on the video-sharing platform all weekend long, she and three pals — Stassie Karanikolaou, Victoria Villarroel, and Yris Palmer — open up about which one of them is the most likely to do a variety of different things.

You can see it all go down (above), and it’s fine for a behind-the-scenes look into the makeup mogul’s life and all that — especially when it comes to learning about how best pal Stassie is a little bit of a wild child! Still… it pales in comparison to the actual physical fight that aired on KUWTK this week. Will all KarJenner content for the rest of this quarantine be downhill from that incredible moment?! Whatever is there to look forward to from here coming from the great city of Calabasas?? Woe is us! LOLz!
